The Parkallen Community League is involved in planning for the future of our community. With large projects in the works, including the 109 Street Area Renewal Plan, the Flood Mitigation strategy, and the South Campus Development Plan, changes are coming for Parkallen. The city and the university hold engagement events around most developments and planning changes. Your Civics committee advocates for the best interests of Parkallen at these events, and at project specific meetings throughout the year.
Our voice is important.
If you’re interested in helping out, we have volunteer opportunities ranging from small, one-time projects to longer term involvement.
